At British Dental Clinic, your dental wellbeing is our priority.

What is gum scaling and when do you need it?

Gum scaling in Lanzarote is a non-invasive method and highly recommended for both the prevention and treatment of periodontal diseases.

These conditions occur when bacteria accumulate in the gums causing inflammation.

If not treated in time, the inflammation can progress to a loss of the bone that supports the teeth and, in extreme situations, result in tooth loss.

Our technique involves the thorough removal of plaque and tartar build-up both at and below the gum line.

If you experience gum inflammation, bleeding or recession, gum scaling will be an effective solution for you.

Does the Gum Scaling Procedure hurt?

Despite what many may think, gum scaling does not have to be painful or uncomfortable.

At British Dental Clinic, we prioritise your comfort and apply local anaesthetic to numb the treated area. Our experts perform the procedure with care and precision to minimise any discomfort, ensuring you are comfortable throughout the process.

At British Dental Clinic we are committed to providing affordable dental treatment. In addition, we have flexible financing plans so that you can receive your treatment without financial worries.

Gum Scaling in Lanzarote: Step by Step

At British Dental Clinic we explain in detail how we approach gum scaling so that you are fully informed:

Detailed Oral Health Assessment

We perform a thorough analysis of your gums to determine the extent of the damage. We use advanced diagnostic tools, such as X-rays, to get a clear picture of your condition.

We apply Local Anaesthesia

Before we begin, we will apply a local anaesthetic to ensure you feel no pain or discomfort during the treatment. Ensuring your comfort is our top priority.

We start with Raspado

We use specialised instruments to scrape and clean under the gums, removing plaque and tartar build-up from the roots of the teeth.

We finish with Root Planing

After scaling, we proceed to root planing to smooth the roots and prevent future accumulations of plaque and tartar.

Post-treatment follow-up

We schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and make sure there are no complications.
